  • We had TWO weddings. Elderly family could not travel to L.A. for the BIG wedding; so we held a second tiny wedding/reception our of state. Dana & Joann ("Party & Be Married") helped us plan & execute the first but there was no one for the second and WOW did we learn so much by seeing the difference. -- GET THE PLANNING & COORDINATION HELP!! Worth every penny!We saw so many little things show up for just a tiny reception; creating difficulty and noise. All of that was fully taken care of and invisible at our BIG reception, thanks to Dana & Joann. We met several coordinator/planners; we asked, "what would you do if XYZ happened?" We found 3 types of answers:1) "Yeah,... I'm not paid to solve problems, just facilitate the schedule,... " 2) "We could send someone to the store to get some supplies to solve it,... " 3) "We've seen that happen, so now we have a day-of "tool-kit;" so we already have what's needed solve that problem." full of the needed supplies to fix that, and several othe... Read more

  • Hiring Dana and Joanne was one of the best decisions we made. We knew from the start we needed to hire a coordinator. Our wedding was at a community center, and several of our key vendors had not done a wedding before. Our caterer had never done a large scale event before. Dana was able to seamlessly coordinate the many moving pieces together. If there were any problems on the day of, I was unaware of them. She took care of everything the month before the wedding. Instead of being a ball of stress trying to coordinate everything, my husband and I went into the wedding relaxed. They had great vendor recommendations for us. For appetizers, we were looking for something really basic and simples - chips, dips, veggies, etc. I was getting quotes for $1000. I was getting ready to suck it up and just go to Costco the day before, but Joann recommended a personal chef who could do it for less than half. This chef also was able to make a vegan gluten-free lasagna that everyone raved about. ... Read more

  • Planning a wedding isn't easy, and can be both stressful and exhausting. Initially my fiancé and I thought that we could handle it on our own. We didn't really have the budget for a wedding planner so we didn't consider it to be an option. After a few weeks we gave up, it was extremely difficult with our work schedules and we didn't know the first thing about the process. We knew we were in over our heads and we desperately needed help. From the moment we met both Dana and Joann we were put at ease. These ladies are the most personable, professional and well experienced ladies we have ever met. They instantly made us feel relaxed about the whole experience and we knew that we could trust them in planning the most important and expensive "day" of our entire lives. That day we drove home and knew that because we could finally sleep in peace now, we had to hire them! It was worth our sanity and it allowed us to enjoy the entire process instead of pulling our hair out. It's really hard ... Read more

  • Dana at 'Party and be married' went above and beyond for the Carrillo's wedding!! Before the wedding we met twice, one to go through the time line and the second one was for the rehersal. Of course we also kept In touch through e-mail, phone calls and texts answering any questions we might have and always offering to help with anything we might need help in!! Then finally the day off the wedding came, let me tell you... I didn't stress or worried about anything!!! My fiancé and I at the time didn't want to see each other before the ceremony and Dana made sure everyone respected our wishes! The ceremony went smoothly and wonderfully, she cued the DJ whenever the music needed to change, made sure my dress was perfect for when I walked down the isle, made sure the photographer was always taking pictures. Now, the reception area was above and beyond my expectations!! I mean Dana, Joanne and Dominique did such an amazing job, words couldn't express how appreciative I am for them for making...

  • Omgosh! Let's begin when we first met... I was bit nervous to meet Laura at first as I didn't know what to expect. I was contemplating wether or not I should hired an event coordinator. The moment she arrived to my house I knew I had made the right decision, she greeted me with a hug and was extremely pleasant!!! She made me feel so comfortable that by the end of our first meeting I wasnt nervous any more. Her pricing was reasonable and made me feel more calm knowing someone was going to take care of the vendors, groom, myself, bridesmaids, grooms men's, every detail of my wedding, venue staff, guest, and everything else. Yes, is a lot and this is why I give them kudos for everything they did for us!! I can honestly say I would hire them again in a heart beat cause without them my wedding would have not been amazing and memorable. I thank Laura and her family from the bottom of my heart for going above and beyond for my family, guest and always checking on us during our big day!! Love ... Read more

  • How else do you say fantastic? If Event Planning had a super hero it would be Dana. We hired her and her team for day of wedding coordinator and we got so much more. They were all so professional and helpful, beyond belief. Absolutely amazing. They helped us with everything from negotiations to choosing linens all the way to "did you forget your sunglasses" and everything in between. We definitely would not have had our wedding turn out as spectacular as it did without them. It really did not feel like a business transaction as much as it felt like I had a sister on my side who really knew what she was doing.

  • Party and be Married is simply amazing! Our wedding location was a challenge as it was a park and EVERYTHING needed to be brought into the venue the morning of the wedding and then removed promptly following the end of the event. Dominique was so much fun to brainstorm with when it came to decor ideas! She had so many and she helped me come up with an idea for a large floral display to "soften" some of the red barn wood over the dance floor. Jojo was on point with her planning suggestions making sure all angles were considered. Dana was great at addressing all my random logistical concerns and timing everything in a logical order. They were all so helpful and supportive throughout the whole process of wedding planning up through the day of. They were fun to work with, flexible and they really came through for us on our wedding day. While Dom was coordinating our crew at the church for the ceremony, Dana and Jojo were at the reception location setting up. They completely transformed ... Read more

  • Being as organized and detail-oriented as I am, and this being the first and last time I will get married, there were many details that did not even occur to me. Lucky for us, Jo, Dana, and Dominique are amazing at what they do. They brought those missed details to our attention or already took care of them. They were there for everything throughout our entire engagement and on our wedding day. You know those situations where everything seems to go wrong at the wrong time? Yup. We had one of those. Ours was a flower crisis a few weeks before our wedding and I was in a panic. Before I knew it there was already a solution to our problem and my panic was gone. They helped us set up our reception hall and made it even more beautiful than I had imagined! On our wedding day, they went from being our wedding planners to our wedding day coordinators. What an amazing feeling it was to be able to completely relax and be in the moment throughout our entire day, knowing everything else w... Read more

  • Dana, Joann, and Dominique of Party and Be Married were amazing life-savers. I could not have pulled off the beautiful wedding I had without all of their hard work. I did most of my wedding planning on my own, and towards the end of the planning, as the day was drawing closer and closer, I realized I really needed an expert to help me tie it all together if I wanted all my work of months to really show and pay off on the big day...moreover, I really wanted to enjoy my day without running around worrying about the logistics of it, and without burdening my wedding party or family so that they too could enjoy my celebration. I got in touch with Dana a month before the big day, and she was quick to respond, and available to meet with me right away, because there was no time to waste. I hired her team for my "day of" planning, but really, they do a lot of work ahead of time. They asked me all the right questions, to determine those little details I had never thought of. They were available ... Read more

  • The Party and Be Married staff was outstanding. They took care of every little detail including things we would not have thought of . They absolutely were the reason our special day was so special. They were responsive to every need and concern and were constantly putting our minds at ease when the panic started to set in. Every time we had a concern they immediately addressed it and put our minds at ease. We could not have asked for a better planner for our wedding. They are AWESOME!

  • What can you say about JoJo, Dana, Dominique and team that does them justice? We absolutely love these ladies and could not have had the peace of mind we did on our wedding day had we not hired them. These wonderful ladies know their stuff and are prepared for every situation and do not let one detail go undone. The moment we met them, we were instantly comfortable with them and felt like they got our concerns and could help us pull together all the detail that we had planned on our own. They are all wonderful in their own way. JoJo is the planner extraordinaire who has more colorful sunglasses than anyone I know. Dana is Ms. Timeline and gets it organized and done. Dominique is a creative gem. She designed our invitation and program...and Thank You cards. They went beyond the "day of" services and helped us take care of so many of the little things so we would not have to worry about them. We love these ladies and consider them our friends. Party and Be Married will care for every det... Read more

  • This girls are amazing. I initially considered doing this on my own and then realized that I wanted to enjoy my day. I met with three different DOP and settled on Party and Be Married. Of all three vendors, P&BM made me feel very comfortable and, simply, they know what they are doing and it shows. They brought up things I would have never thought of and they helped deal with vendors as it started to get crazy and close to the wedding day. We were organized but had a lot of DIY projects. They were supportive and offered advice when I needed it. The day of the wedding was insane. It was at my moms house with 120 people and over half were family. Although that can be tricky, they handled it with ease. I had many family members tell me how professional and hard-working they all were. I am a bit of a perfectionist (ok a lot of a perfectionist) and I felt great about letting go and having the ladies finish up the last details for me. And they did not disappoint. We had the initi...
